I remember watching Johnny Carson on television as a teenager.

We all know the icon Johnny Carson. I remember how much of a treat it was for me to be able to stay up late on Friday nights to watch the Tonight Show.

Time Life has released a 6 DVD set of the Vault Collection available at Barnes & Noble. My husband and I enjoyed watching these DVDs. These DVDs are unique as they give you the option of viewing with or without commercials.

When you watch with commercials the ones they show are commercials that were popular in the 70's/80's when Johnny Carson was on the Tonight Show.

My husband and I enjoyed the flashbacks and laughed at the commercials/products remembered from childhood.

This DVD set is great for anyone that is a fan of classic television.
